Ordinary Time, 26th Week
Teach me wisdom and knowledge,
For in your commands I trust.
It is good for me that I have been afflicted,
That I may learn your statutes.
I know, O LORD, that your ordinances are just,
And in your faithfulness you have afflicted me.
According to your ordinances,
They still stand firm, all things serve you.
I am your servant;
Give me discernment that I may know your decrees.
The revelation of your words sheds light,
Giving understanding to the simple.
Job 42:1-3, 5-6, 12-16
